    I feel inclined to welcome the new visitors, reminding them that we actually do have an academic side here. In fact, we’re largely for sale at the moment, so pick your favorite department and make an offer.

    Thank you UOM for blogging the negotiations.

    As for the slick communications blather disseminated by the adminis, I just hit delete.

    And wow, thank you for tipping the mag off to the story! It must thrill you to have so many more visitors to your blog! What an incredible service to the University! It makes us look so great, to have someone like you as our ever watchful dog.

      Whether acknowledged or not, there are very deep and serious abuses within the administrative ranks of this university, and an ever-growing trail of evidence. (In fact, maybe UOM or readers could bring a recap to the top of the blog for new eyes to see?) I will never side with those who would rather look away from the ugliness than confront it.

      To Wow: Your sarcasm gets a revise and resubmit. The key is to make it funny too. Try adding a goat.

      Wow is so typical of our admins. Bash those who ask why, those who inquire, those who question, those who don’t roll over, etc.

      (Do I pick up a bit of Gleason-esque attitude in there?)

    Administrators are so accustomed to their CEO salaries, special deals, and perks that they believe their rewards confirm their importance. How outrageous that their insider deals should face public scrutiny! How shocking their institutional value is not universally acclaimed!

    UOM must be demonized. Let the faculty drones eat goats!

    I’ve not been impressed with Margie Paris’ absence at an important time for the university, which is not what I was expecting from her. This piece now makes me wonder if she’s planning to protect the senate before the administration dismantles it altogether. I’d like there to be some evidence that I am wrong and that she hasn’t sold out to the administration already.

      Dear Anon, Your rush to judgement is bewildering. The proof of the pudding, etc, etc. The answer to your fears can found only by watching the Senate. I trust that I will see you at the Meetings! Your participation will help protect our Constitution.

      That seems to be the point, old man, that the jury is out and people are looking for her to step up.

      MP is hard at work doing her job, which is organizing the Senate for the coming year. The Senate President has no authority to take actions on her own. If YOU want something done, bring your favorite legislation or policy proposal to the Senate. I expect you will find it dealt with effectively, within the framework of the Constitution. Btw, have you read the Constitution?

      Please listen to old man. Trying to prod action by sniping anonymously on this blog is counterproductive.
